Grassroots Legislative Network




The NYSVMS's Grassroots Legislative Network (GRLN) invites veterinarians to take an active role in helping to safeguard and advance veterinary medicine in New York State. The purpose of this new program is to establish a network of veterinarians willing to contact their legislators when called to action by the NYSVMS, visit legislators in their home districts, and/or attend fund raisers.


New York State legislators make decisions that impact the veterinarian, veterinary practice, animal welfare, the status of animals in society, etc. They need to receive meaningful input from veterinarians (constituents) about how a proposed piece of legislation will impact them; lawmakers tend to be very responsive to the needs and concerns of their voting constituents.

Members participating in the NYSVMS's Grassroots Legislative Network will be matched with their state legislators, given information about important issues and what action is needed; i.e., writing a letter, telephoning, faxing, emailing or meeting personally.


Members interested in participating in the GRLN are invited to contact GRLN chairman, Dr. Dean Snyder, drdino60@frontiernet.net, (585) 392-7387.
